Summary In African Americans at Work, historian Steven A. Reich examines the economical, political and cultural forces that have built and broken America's black workforce for centuries. From the abolition of slavery through the civil rights movement and Great Recession, African Americans have been singularly disadvantaged members of the workforce, repeatedly denied access to the opportunities all Americans are to be afforded under the Constitution.
Contents Emancipation and the politics of Black labor -- Jim Crow's Black workers -- The great Black labor migration -- A new deal for Black workers -- The Black working-class movement for civil rights -- Opening the American workplace.
